1963 Gibson "Les Paul" SG Custom Polaris White original-vintage
Click To Enlarge

Here is an incdredibly well preserved example of Gibson's most sought-after guitar from the 60's. This fine example is excellent condition with a bright, clean, & rare ORIGINAL Polaris White Finish. There were only about 2,000 Polaris White SG Customs produced between 1961-1969. It's one of the last original P.A.F. bearing guitars ever made, and sounds absolutely stellar. We are talking about the perfect vintage Gibson tone here! Gibson often spit out 2,000+ of other models in one single year. Just the sight of this guitar recalls iconic images of Eric Clapton, Tony Iommi, & Jimi Hendrix forging Rock n' Roll history with their finger-tips. This is actually almost identical to the one that Hendrix used for his appearence on the Dick Cavett show and his rendition of "Sunshine of your Love" cover that he is so famous for playing. Here is your chance to own a piece of that history for a very reasonable price!!
 

* This guitar is in extremely clean condition, with very minimal playwear anywhere. It is exterely rare to find such a clean example. A true "Closet Classic"

* The original nitro finish is fully intact with no major dings, dents, scratches, buckle rash, or  wear spots. There are a few very small marks and one small ding on the front some small bumps here and there, along with some mild finish checking. (it is 50 years old!!) Perfect "Closet-Mojo"

* The neck, original frets & Ebony fretboard are perfect. There are no divets or ruts, no neck-wear. Only mild fret wear.

* Beautiful "Mother of Pearl" block inlays!!

* Some of the gold hardware has tarnished, but other then that there is almost no visible playwear.

* There is the normal stress checking & around the heel & neck joint; there are no signs of separation or repair at any time. Everything is solid as a rock and it playes fantastic!! 

* The original pickups are as follows: There is a  P.A.F in the middle position, "Patent Number"  in neck & bridge. Again, this guitar sounds absolutley incredible

* It has been checked out, tested, and set up by the best luthier in South Florida. It plays as good as it looks, enough said. 


* The only non-original parts are 1 volume knob, the toggle switch, and possibly the output jack & nut. The pots that are currently installed are replacements, however the orginal pots are included in the case, dated 6232 (32nd week of 1962). One original pot is not working, but the other 3 seem to test out fine... The working original pots are still wired together from the factory...

* Some of the tuners spin somewhat loosely at first, but still hold tension just fine once the string is tightened. 

* The original black harshell case with gold intereior is included. Like the guitar, the case is in excellent condition. All latches work perfectly and the metal Gibson logo is still on it.
